Hayley Centenera

The Hayley Centenera Scholarship was established by past Trinity College parents Julian and Helen Centenera in memory of their daughter, Hayley, whose life was tragically cut short in December 2005. Hayley is remembered for her great vitality, infectious smile and her love for being involved in everything whether it was learning, playing or performing.
